    Hello from KY

    Hello all,
    Just wanted to say hello. I am new to this site and wanted to give a short background rundown. I am a 13 yr Army Veteran (19K). Im no stranger to shooting however I am relatively new to "Long Range Precision" shooting, I shot regularly in the Army for qualifications but as many of you may know that is mostly 300 meter pop ups where "hit is a hit". My first true Long Range Rifle was a Savage 110BA in .338 LM. When I realized how expensive that is to shoot I hopped around and played with .308, 300WM and finally bought the Ruger RPR in 6.5CM and fell in love. My wife and I have been on the range for about a year now and have had consecutive hits out to 1600yds, She shoots a Kimber SOC Tactical Advance II in 6.5CM with a Nightforce NSX8 6-22X50 and I with my RPR with the exact same scope.
    I am glad to be a part of this site and hope to learn from those that know more than me and to hopefully help someone newer than me!!!

    Welcome aboard. The forums are a good source of information. I tend to learn something new everyday and favor the Creedmoor as well.
    See you at the range.

    I have been shooting for almost three years, having taken it up in retirement.
    See you at the range.
